With over 90 members during the 2019-2020 year, 15 competitive teams across multiple titles, and over 600 discord users currently in the Discord server, the University of Derby eSports society invites students with a passion or interest in Gaming to come and take part in the NUEL (National University Esports League), NSE (National Student Esports) and a variety of casual and competitive events throughout the year.
With a top 16 finish for our 1st Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team and a Division 2 win for our League of Legend team in the NUEL last Spring, as well as a 1st place finish in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive this summer we are always looking for new members of any skill level to join in for video game nights and eSports events.
For those not interested in university leagues or the competitive side of things, we will also be hosting a variety of social events such as LAN parties, viewing parties for major eSports events and mini tournaments, as well as casual gaming with people on our Discord server.
Throughout 2020/2021 we intend to a run both weekly and monthly tournaments with prizes worth up to £35 for the monthly tournaments, with one for Rocket League being run during September and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive in September. We have further plans to do socially distanced meet-ups, such as picnics or tours for freshers around Derby during freshers week.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with us through our social media sites, or hop in our Discord server! (https:/discord.gg/derbyraptors)
